To help you out, we’ve narrowed them all down to the best four, in terms of quality, price, offerings and service. Whether you need to calm your jetlagged body, restore your weary feet or relax the mind, here are our top relaxation suggestions in the City of Angels.
1] Let’s Relax Massage & Spa
Annually voted as the most popular day spa in Thailand, this long-standing establishment has 20 branches in Bangkok, so you’re sure to find a convenient one near you. This award-winning spa offers an extensive range of treatments and services by its experienced staff. In addition to an incredible traditional Thai body and foot massage, they also provide an aromatherapy oil massage, hot stone massage, four-hand Thai massage, back and shoulder massage and 10-step facial massage. This is a great massage in Bangkok you should try.
2] Bamboo Spa
Bamboo Spa (Sukhumvit Soi 26, not far from BTS Phrom Phong) is a haven of serenity and relaxation. The order of the day here is cleanliness, authenticity, calmness and rejuvenation. This fine establishment has a vast array of massage services available, everything from a traditional Thai massage to specialist massages like detoxification and reflexology. While the price might be a bit pricey than usual, we feel the attention to detail and professionalism offered are well worth the extra bahts.
3] Panpuri Organic Spa
For a genuinely high-end massage in Bangkok experience, head on over to Panpuri Organic Spa in CentralEmbassy. This renowned spa features modern Asian decor with immaculate wood and marble finishes. From stress relief to tranquility-orientated, the range of massage treatments on offer here is first-rate. The well-trained and dedicated staff will guarantee you have the relaxing and restorative treatment of your dreams.
4] Yunomori Onsen
And lastly, for something a little different, head on over to Yunomori, a traditional Japanese onsen (bathhouse) in the heart of Bangkok. The spa draws its special bathing water from the thermal springs at Wangkanai Temple in Kanchanaburi. With a distinctly minimalist and calming aesthetic throughout, your body, mind and spirit will thank you for coming here. A Thai herbal compress massage is the perfect follow-up to a dip in the onsen’s different temperature plunge pools.
